Electricity Section

The Electricity Section oversees the regulation of investor-owned electric utilities in Alabama. Only one electric utility, Alabama Power Co., falls under the PSC's regulatory authority, as cooperatives and municipal systems are exempt from state regulation. Additionally, the PSC does not regulate wholesale power generators or the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).

In its oversight of the company, the Electricity Section monitors Alabama Power Co.'s revenues, expenses, investment (rate base), equity, debt and the Rate Stabilization and Equalization ratemaking mechanism.  The Electricity Section is responsible for analyzing and preparing recommendations to the Commission on all matters regarding the company's quality of service, rates, jurisdictional local distribution, power generation and transmission.
